Energy Solutions become exclusive UK distributor for WaterWorld Electric Motors

Energy Solutions is delighted to announce that they have signed an agreement with WaterWorld to be their exclusive distributor for the WaterWorld range of electric inboard motors for the UK marine market.

WaterWorld manufacture a range of 48 volt DC electric motors, designed to replace small diesel engines in boats up to 10 metres and larger canal craft. Energy Solutions will initially be selling two models – 4.0 kW and 10.0 kW – as well as being the service partner for UK, carrying stock of spare parts.  The WaterWorld models include a motor and controller in one unit on adjustable engine supports, thrust bearings, relay, digital colour touch screen display and throttle.

The electric engines are designed to be a direct replacement for a traditional diesel engine both in size and cost.  Perfect for narrowboats, small coastal craft and inland waterway fleets that are looking to reduce both noise and emissions the engines offer an efficient and reliable electric alternative. Already well established in the Netherlands the motors are a proven and tested option for fleet operators and private owners.

Hugh Cunningham of Energy Solutions explains: “We see a great potential for the WaterWorld electric motors in the UK market. This is an affordable electric option and easy to install – just one unit for motor and controller, no water cooling system and a direct connection to the shaft, without any gearbox.”

As the demand on the marine industry grows to provide clean, quiet, as well as affordable alternatives to diesel engines the team at Energy Solutions are confident that the motors will satisfy boat builders and end user requirements.

Hugh Cunningham concludes: “Energy Solutions offer a range of 48 volt chargers and inverter/chargers as well as lead acid and lithium batteries to complement the WaterWorld system. The efficiency of the drives mean that users will be able to get an excellent range from the systems as well as being easy to service and update – a real bonus for fleets.”

WaterWorld is launching a range of larger models during 2019; Energy Solutions will be working with WaterWorld to eventually distribute the entire range alongside the Dutch distributor De Stille Boot who will be providing sales and application support to the team.
